Benfica vs Famalicao Predictions

  • Benfica have won five of their last six league games to nil.
  • Famalicao are without two suspended forwards and an injured midfielder for the trip to Lisbon.
  • Famalicao have conceded nine goals in their last three Primeira Liga away games.

Back Benfica to be ruthless against Famalicao 

Benfica will not allow Famalicao to stop their relentless pursuit of the Primeira Liga title when they entertain the mid-table side at the Luz on Friday night. The Eagles have won ten of 11 home league games this year and have ruthlessly dismissed far better teams than Fama.

Joao Pedro Sousa’s side arrive on the back of a 1-0 win over Portimonense in which they lost midfielder Santiago Colombatto to a broken arm and forward Mihai-Alexandru Dobre to a red card. Lively fellow striker Jhonder Cadiz continues to serve a suspension that he incurred in an altercation at Santa Clara.

Roger Schmidt can name a strong side for the game with only Chiquinho, who limped off against Vizela, an injury doubt.

Three goals the average for Eagles at the Luz

It is likely that Benfica’s quality will shine through at some stage and they win the game. The Lisbon giants have more or less matched their xG figures in their last three home league games, scoring two, three and three against Sporting Club, Casa Pia and Boavista respectively.

Neither of the last two teams on that list managed to create anough to push their xG figures above 0.25 so it s probably worth risking a bet on Benfica to win to nil here given the visitors will be without two regular forwards.

A 3-0 success is the recommended correct score play here as, despite the fine form of Fama keeper Luis Junior, the visitors have shipped nine goals across their last three away league games. Benfica average just over three goals per game at home this term and have kept five clean sheets in their last six Primeira Liga outings.
